CASE: A traumatic nondisplaced periprosthetic trochanteric fracture around a well-fixed and functioning Birmingham Hip Resurfacing prosthesis was managed with a reconstruction intramedullary nail. The surgical procedure provided excellent pain relief, and the patient was able to mobilize with crutches the day after surgery. Follow-up at 1 year confirmed excellent clinical and radiographic results. CONCLUSION: In a patient with a previously well-functioning hip resurfacing prosthesis, internal fixation rather than revision hip arthroplasty can offer good clinical and radiographic outcomes...

CASE: A 65-year-old farmer re-presented 5 years after sustaining a midshaft prosthetic fracture of a previous long-stem revision hip replacement. He was treated with a proximal-loading short femoral stem, and did not require an extended trochanteric osteotomy for removal of the well-fixed distal implant. He was able to fully bear weight immediately postoperatively, and he remained pain-free without functional loss at the 42-month follow-up. CONCLUSION: This use of a modern short-stem prosthesis is a treatment option for a potentially complex prosthetic fracture in highly active patients, and it reduces intraoperative complexity...

We report a case of bead shedding from a cylindrical extensively porous-coated cementless femoral component with concomitant taper corrosion at the modular head-neck junction of a metal-on-polyethylene total hip prosthesis. The patient presented with chronic thigh pain 4 years after primary total hip arthroplasty, and radiographs revealed significant osteolysis and metallic debris around the femoral stem. Intraoperatively, the patient had a grossly loose femoral component with debonding of sintered beads from the femoral stem, as well as evidence of taper corrosion...

Background and purpose - The treatment of patients between 55 and 70 years with displaced intracapsular femoral neck fracture remains controversial. We compared internal fixation (IF), bipolar hemiarthroplasty (HA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) in terms of mortality, reoperations and patient-reported outcome by using data from the Norwegian Hip Fracture Register. Patients and methods - We included 2,713 patients treated between 2005 and 2012. 1,111 patients were treated with IF, 1,030 with HA and 572 patients with THA...

BACKGROUND: After total hip arthroplasty, there would be some problems for the patients. Implant loosening is one of the significant problems which results in thigh pain and even revision surgery. Difference between Young's modulus of bone-metal is the cause of stress shielding, atrophy, and subsequent implant loosening. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this paper, femoral stem stiffness is reduced by novel biomechanical and biomaterial design which includes using proper design parameters, coating it with porous surface, and modeling the sketch by the software...

A 76-year-old woman who underwent bilateral metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty fell 3 years after this procedure and subsequently incurred continuous pain in her buttock. Plain radiographs showed no fracture and no loosening of the hip prosthesis. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an abnormal, large, thick-walled mass with heterogeneous signal intensity at the right buttock. The prerevision diagnosis was adverse reaction to metal debris. The mass was surgically resected, and the metal femoral head was replaced by a dual-mobility prosthesis...

BACKGROUND: A high rate of postoperative dislocation in total hip arthroplasty (THA) for Crowe IV developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) has been reported, 1 of the main reasons being higher true acetabular anteversion. If the cup is fixed with normal anteversion, the anterior rim will be excessively exposed, which reduces the contact areas of the cup and bone, affects prosthesis stability, and leads to iliopsoas tendinitis and persistent hip pain after THA. The aim of this study was to demonstrate that when cup anteversion is larger, adjusting femoral anteversion to bring the combined anteversion (CA) into the "safe zone" might prevent dislocation...

INTRODUCTION: The introduction of resection prostheses paved the way for the development of limb-sparing surgery in patients with primary or metastatic bone tumours. After some time, the developing possibilities of treatment of extensive bone defects allowed for the use of resection prostheses as an emergency procedure in patients undergoing revision surgery due to hip implant loosening. The aim of this paper is to compare treatment outcomes in patients receiving the Modular Universal Tumour and Revision System (MUTARS) resection prosthesis during arthroplasty performed for different indications: treatment of a tumour metastasis and revision surgery in cases of implant loosening...

BACKGROUND: When using the gap-balancing technique for TKA, excessive medial release and varus proximal tibial resection can be associated with internal rotation of the femoral component. Previous studies have evaluated the causes of femoral component rotational alignment with a separate factor analysis using unadjusted statistical methods, which might result in treatment effects being attributed to confounding variables. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What pre- and intraoperative factors are associated with internal rotation of the femoral component in TKA using the gap balancing technique? (2) To what degree does femoral component rotation as defined by the navigation system differ from rotation as measured by postoperative CT? METHODS: Three hundred seventy-seven knees that underwent computer-assisted primary TKA attributable to degenerative osteoarthritis with varus or mild valgus alignment in which medial soft tissue release was performed, and those with preoperative radiographs including preoperative CT between October 2007 and June 2014 were included in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Long-term bisphosphonate therapy for osteoporosis is associated with an increased risk of low-to-no energy atypical subtrochanteric and femoral shaft fractures with characteristic radiologic findings. There are few reports of patients with long-term bisphosphonate-induced periprosthetic fractures, all of them had a hip arthroplasty prosthesis. In this report, we present a unique case of a 90-year-old Caucasian female on long-term bisphosphonate therapy with a sliding hip screw implant who sustained a periprosthetic fracture of the femoral shaft at the distal aspect of the plate...

INTRODUCTION: Disengagement of polyethylene insert used in total knee arthroplasty is a rare but serious complication. Still rarer is disengagement because of failure of tibial insert locking mechanism. We report a previously unpublished complication of polyethylene insert locking mechanism failure in a 10-months-old posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty in a 70-year-old woman with osteoarthritis for whom Attune (Depuy) knee implant was used. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year-old female underwent (Attune, Depuy) primary bilateral posterior stabilised total knee arthroplasty in a private hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Bipolar hemi-arthroplasty of the hip is a commonly performed procedure in elderly patients with intra-capsular fracture of the neck of the femur with good short-term results for pain relief, return to activity and morbidity. The incidence of intra-pelvic prosthesis migration or protrusion is rare and one of the inciting factors is chronic low-grade sepsis. Acetabular prosthesis protrusion poses a difficult and challenging surgical problem due to surrounding neurovascular structures...

A fracture of the stem in a total hip arthroplasty (THA) is an uncommon complication. We report a case of femoral stem fracture in a 55-year-old male patient after a lightning strike. A revision was conducted using a Wagner osteotomy and a revision prosthesis. Dall-Milles cerclages were used to close the osteotomy. The postoperative evolution was satisfactory, with an immediate partial weight bearing, consolidation of the osteotomy after three months and return to daily activity without pain.
